Our tour guide was so patient and entertaining! He explained thoroughly of the history that is behind the buildings and streets to us. It was a great tour! Plus the free hot chocolate, coffee, or tea at the best cafe always helps! =)

The guy who we walked with - sadly I forget his name - he was just great! Despite bad weather he was upbeat, full of info and more than willing to answer my 1001 miscellaneous Melbourne questions :)
Highly recommended, you will see things you didn't imagine!
